Are there specific types of massage that are more effective for boosting immunity?

A Swedish massage, characterized by long, flowing strokes and kneading techniques, may contribute to improved immunity in several ways. Firstly, the massage induces relaxation by reducing stress hormones like cortisol. Chronic stress is known to suppress the immune system, and by alleviating stress, a Swedish massage may help maintain immune function. Additionally, the increased circulation stimulated by the massage can promote the movement of lymph, a fluid containing immune cells, throughout the body. This enhanced lymphatic flow may support the immune system by facilitating the removal of toxins and waste products.

 

Moreover, the release of endorphins during a Swedish massage can contribute to an overall sense of well-being. Endorphins have been associated with positive effects on the immune system, potentially reinforcing the body’s natural defense mechanisms. While not a cure for illnesses, a Swedish massage may play a supportive role in maintaining a balanced and responsive immune system when incorporated into a holistic approach to wellness.
